Summer Fun at the Central Park Zoo

There is lots going on at the Central Park Zoo this summer.  Along with all of the usual wonderful residents, we have twin Patagonian cavy babies (located at Tisch Children’s Zoo), three swan geese goslings (also at the Tisch Children’s Zoo), a Victorian Crowned Pigeon fledgling (in the Tropic aviary) and several Banded Mongoose babies (located upstairs in the Tropic Building).
